U.S. Unveils Fingerprint Plan, Angers Arab Groups

This is a step in the right direction, but of course, the usual suspects are already lining up against it. "It's profiling!" the scream. Yes, it is. Guess what? All 19 of the perpetrators of the WTC/Pentagon/Attempted White House hijackings were Arab immigrants. That's not profiling, that's not conjecture, that is FACT. Zogby can bitch and whine all he wants, but that does not change the fact that 19 Arab men killed 3000 people, most of them Americans, on American soil.

I really hope that some of the EUnuchs criticize this move, because it will be a chance to shove facts into their sanctimonious faces. France, for example, requires long-term visitors to register within seven days of their arrival, every 12 months after that, and whenever they move.

A lot of the WTC terrorists were from Saudia Arabia which is not included in the list.

Well, since the article I linked doesn't list the countries, I assume you read the list on another article on the subject, as I also did. The only countries that were on the list were the countries that are designated by the US as sponsors of terrorism. Saudi Arabia is not on this list (although it would be quite easy to construct an argument for their inclusion, but that is another story altogether). I think the catchall is the "unspecified nations" mentioned in the article, although a thorough registration of everyone who stays here for an extended period of time will flush out a lot of people who are not supposed to be here.
